Picture of How to Make Seamless Crochet Circle

There are, of course, many different ways to crochet a circle.When you make the end of a crochet circle,there is always a bumpy seam and gap which is easily visible. However, there is a easy and simple basic way to make a circle without gaps .This will give you a flat Seamless Circle.


Step 1:

Start your circle with a magic circle.I prefer using magic circle over the normal chain 6 and join method.

Magic circle would not give you the hole gap that can be seen in the middle of a circle.

Step 2:

Now, here comes the trick to a seamless circle.Normally, you start a circle with chain three(which counts as a stitch), and continue with Double crochets in the following stitch.

So, instead of a chain three, start your round with a Standing Double Crochet.

Standing Double Crochet is nothing but to start your round with wrapping the yarn twice on the hook.

Check out the detailed tutorial on Standing double crochet by Tamara Kelly.

To Start a Standing Double Crochet pull your hook up, making a loop that’s about the same height as a Double Crochet would be, and put your finger on the loop to hold it down.

Step 6:

Holding down the loop to the hook, yarn over the hook with the loop itself.
